Nintendo shares jump after Switch console sets United States sales records

20 April 2017, 10:24 | Patty Hardy

Nintendo's new Switch console-handheld hybrid system has smashes even more sales records, and the Japanese console-maker now recognizes the Switch as the fastest-selling console in Nintendo's history.

The initial success of the Switch - which works as both a TV-linked console and a portable device - is directly tied to Nintendo's classic video game franchise "The Legend of Zelda", according to analysts. For more info on the console's sales, you can check out the full press release from Nintendo below. The company told IGN, "Throughout April, NOA territories will receive the last shipments of Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition systems for this year". Where its long-term game stands has yet to be seen, as it's still working to make the system readily available to buyers interested in it. It will reportedly center on new details regarding the company's latest gaming console system, the Nintendo Switch, as well as other news regarding the Nintendo 3DS.

HONG KONG - Nintendo fans can't get enough of the Switch. So it's not that hard to believe Nintendo's boast that it was able to sell more than 906,000 Nintendo Switches in March, as least in the United States only. The Nintendo Switch console goes on sale today and retails for 300 dollars.

By contrast, Microsoft sold more than 2 million Xbox One units during its first 18 days of availability, while Sony sold 2.1 million PlayStation 4 units during the console's first 14 days, according to reports. Per SuperData's projections, Switch will shift over 7.2 million consoles in 2017, putting it over halfway toward the Wii U's total install base that took four-plus years to accumulate.

The Nintendo Switch game sold more copies than the console itself, IGN notes. Since the console's launch last month, the Switch has been almost impossible to find on store shelves, and whenever units come in, they're quickly swiped by fast-acting consumers. It plays sort of like a deeper, more intense version of Wii Sports boxing, utilizing the Switch's motion controls to simulate your fists.
